Just when you thought the drama between Ben Simmons and the 76ers would come to an end, we've got more from Adrian Wojnarowski. Per Woj, Simmons informed the team on Friday that he's not quite ready to suit up yet.

Apparently, Simmons met with teammates, coaches and everything and made it clear he's still got to clear his head before hitting the court.

Simmons opened up and now we've got to wait and see when he's ready. Simmons was hoping to get traded, but it's up in the air if that will happen or not. Only time will tell if Simmons ends up playing for the team or not this year.
